Some brief overview of this book

Set in the visionary future of Atwood’s acclaimed Oryx and Crake, The Year of the Flood is at once a moving tale of lasting friendship and a landmark work of speculative fiction. In this second book of the MaddAddam trilogy, the long-feared waterless flood has occurred, altering Earth as we know it and obliterating most human life. Among the survivors are Ren, a young trapeze dancer locked inside the high-end sex club Scales and Tails, and Toby, who is barricaded inside a luxurious spa. Amid shadowy, corrupt ruling powers and new, gene-spliced life forms, Ren and Toby will have to decide on their next move, but they cant stay locked away.

Biography

When Margaret Atwood announced to her friends that she wanted to be a writer, she was only 16 years old. It was Canada. It was the 1950s. No one knew what to think. Nonetheless, Atwood began her writing career as a poet. Published In 1964 while she was still a student at Harvard, her second poetry anthology, The Circle Game, was awarded the Governor Generals Award, one of Canadas most esteemed literary prizes. Since then, Atwood has gone on to publish many more volumes of poetry (as well as literary criticism, essays, and short stories), but it is her novels for which she is best known. Atwoods first foray into fiction was 1966s The Edible Woman, an arresting story about a woman who stops eating because she feels her life is consuming her. Grabbing the attention of critics, who applauded its startlingly original premise, the novel explored feminist themes Atwood has revisited time and time again during her long, prolific literary career. She is famous for strong, compelling female protagonists — from the breast cancer survivor in Bodily Harm to the rueful artist in Cats Eye to the fatefully intertwined sisters in her Booker Prize-winning novel The Blind Asassin. Perhaps Atwoods most legendary character is Offred, the tragic breeder in what is arguably her most famous book, 1985s The Handmaids Tale. Part fable, part science fiction, and part dystopian nightmare, this novel presented a harrowing vision of womens lives in an oppressive futuristic society. The Washington Post compared it (favorably) to George Orwells iconic 1984. As if her status as a multi-award-winning, triple-threat writer (fiction, poetry, and essays) were not enough, Atwood has also produced several childrens books, including Princess Prunella and the Purple Peanut (1995) and Rude Ramsay and the Roaring Radishes (2003) — delicious alliterative delights that introduce a wealth of new vocabulary to young readers.
